I’m back at the OPAM projects! Style School was the reason for my two month break, but since that’s over now; I’m ready to jump back into the fun world of random monthly decorating projects! Here goes…

This is the second bookshelf I’ve revamped since starting OPAM. I really like bookshelves, because I can display so many cute things on them. In other words, they are clutter collectors…and I love clutter!

This one came from Target a few years ago. It fit perfectly into the beach décor at my old apartment, so I bought a whole matching set when I moved in. But since I’m not into this color wood anymore it never made it into our house. It was in the garage in the i-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-this-stuff-but-don’t-want-to-throw-it-away pile. Then I decided what it needed was a little bit of pink spray paint. Ya’ll know I like spray paint! Once I got the idea to paint I knew exactly where I wanted to put it and started collecting little goodies to display.

Before: Sad little shelf. After: Two cans of pink spray paint later!

Now it has a home in a little corner of our living room. Isn’t it happy?!

Here’s what I put on it…

On the wall: This clock from IKEA, this print that my sweet brother-in-law and sister-in-law gave me for Christmas and a yellow “A” from the thrift store.

On top: An old typewriter that someone was throwing away (gasp), a Polaroid camera and my Great-Grandma’s book about how to read and write short-hand. Ha!

On the shelves: Books (including Bibles, legal thrillers by John Grisham, Amy Vanderbilt’s “Complete Book of Etiquette” and old Reader’s Digests), mini yellow vases from the thrift store, a light bulb full of confetti and an old hatbox top.

Completely unrelated…but thanks so much to everyone who sent me emails about where to go in Hawaii! I now have a list of fun things to see and do-yay!!!


  1. Oh, wow, that looks gorgeous! I cannot BELIEVE someone was throwing that typewriter away!

    I love how a coat of paint can change and rejuvenate something to make it completely new. Love it.

  2. I have been looking around http://www.pinkcoffeephoto.com and actually am impressed by the amazing content here. I work the nightshift at my job and it really gets boring. I have been coming right here for the past couple nights and reading. I just needed to let you know that I have been enjoying what I have seen and I look forward to reading more.

  3. Stop it already!! You make my house feel so sad. Please come decorate for me, LOL. And please keep showing us more of your quirky and cool style ideas!!
